RAPUNZEL by Richard Brooks (Composer) & Harold Mason (Librettist). Our story begins with the traveling Balladeer who tells us a tale of when he met the Prince in the woods looking for adventure. The Balladeer says there is a tower in the middle of the dark forest where a beautiful voice can be heard. Together the venture deep in the woods where they find a tower with no doors and no windows. At the bottom they hear some one call out “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair to me!” Then they see the longest, most gorgeous hair fall from the top of the tower, and climbing up to the top window was a Witch. The Prince vows to free Rapunzel from the tower. Would you like to come along and see how the story ends?
